L’Opéra de quat’sous/Bertold Brecht and Kurt Weill


Robert Wilson renews his collaboration with the Festival d’Automne with this version of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill’s Threepenny Opera, performed by the Berliner Ensemble. Written in 1928, this story of gang war and corruption pioneered the musical comedy genre. The tale’s darkness is beautifully revived by Wilson’s reinterpretation of expressionist aesthetics.
